The national WEA (Workers Education Association) was established over 100 years ago to provide opportunities for the mass of ordinary people who couldn’t afford further and higher education to attend courses on all sorts of subjects to widen their knowledge and provide them with qualifications. It is now the biggest provider of adult education courses in the country.
